growing carrots that are sweet?
I grew carrots this year, and the size was good. But they were not very sweet despite claims on the seed packet. Are there any carrots that are much sweeter than others, and is there a growing condition that makes for sweeter carrots? This year I dug out a long trench and filled with a mixture of wood ashes, peat moss, compost, and packaged soil to keep the trench "clot-free". They were all pretty straight and long, but lacked any good flavor (although not bitter).
